POETRY: Never Again
Shandall Carroll, 15
New York, NY

When you told me you loved me
I believed you
Never again
I thought I could trust you
You were my boyfriend
We told each other everything
I thought we would be together for ever
I was just so young and so dumb
Never again
Never again would I make that mistake
When you told me you loved me
I believed you
Never again
I really thought I could trust you
Trust you because you were my mother
Then you changed on me
And I thought you would come back
Never again
Never again
Would I fall for something
Something that would make me
Make me so mad and sad
Never ever again.
